Oilcloth is a vinyl product that is bonded and supported with a woven cotton mesh.
Beware of products likely to stain
Oilcloth is waterproof and fairly stain resistant but beware of tomato based sauces and products including tomato ketchup, bolognese, curry, red berries and some felt-tip pens as they have been known to cause staining. Stains should be wiped as soon as possible and can be faded with bicarbonate of soda.
Fading may occur under direct sunlight for extended periods of time since the Oilcloth does not contain a UV inhibitor.
Oilcloth cleans up well with a warm, soapy sponge then dry it off with a soft cloth or towel. Do not machine wash or iron your oilcloth.
